Performing: May 15 & 16, 2020

Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy about mistaken identity and self-discovery comes to life in a hilarious adaptation by Jon Jory. Jory has generously taken one of the Bard’s most beloved comedy and updated it to be accessible to modern actors and audiences while still honoring the language and theatricality of the original. Twelfth Night tells the story of Viola, a young heroine who washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is sent to court a countess and falls hard for a Duke. As she navigates this strange and wonderful new land, she finds her true self and true love in the process.
